21st Battalion Part II Orders, Canadian Expeditionary Force,as transcribed by Al Lloyd (21stbattalion@kos.net) I have made every effort to transcribe the Part II Orders for the 21st Battalion as accurately as possible. There are likely to be some typing errors, and for that I apologize in advance. I found several errors in the original, both in the service numbers and the spelling of the names. Those errors that I was able to identify, I transcribed as per the original, but made note of the...

This is the story of the LAUGHTON FAMILY TREE from the time of Gilbert Laughton (Orkney, Scotland, 1771) until the date of this posting by Richard Van Wyck Laughton (Ontario, Canada, 1952) on February 21, 2012. The credit for the creation of this work rests with my Uncle Paul MacDonell Laughton (Canada, 1923) who painstakingly collected the vast majority of this information from paper records, long before the Internet (Web) was in existence. Since 1986 I have added to Uncle Paul's project,...

This classic book provides details on 2 Battalion Royal Canadian Engineers primarily in the period of 1940-1945 during the 2nd World War (WWII). However, the book also provides a history of "The Corps of Royal Engineers" which will be of interest to anyone studying the Canadian Engineers from conception. The book has a fine collection of photographs of the many projects completed by 2 Battalion RCE during the war.

Trench warfare on the Western Front changed drastically - and forever - when General Ludendorff (Chief of Staff to Field-Marshall Von Hindenburg) initiated "Operation Michael" in March of 1918. The intent of the German offensive was to split the British and French forces, and although initially successful, it became the downfall of the German Empire â a- it opened the way for allied open warfare. The Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was to become a key component of this new war, in...

To coincide with Remembrance Day 2007 it was time for all of us, young and old, to take a look back to our parents, grandparents or great-grandparents to what they did for us and our community in the Great War. One such project that was initiated on Remembrance Day November 2005 was to bring Milton's Great War Soldiers (those being the soldiers of the First World War 1914-1919) to the forefront of modern technology and the Internet. Using this process, it was envisaged that the youth of Milton...

The Great War situation was about to change in Europe in the early months of 1918, as Germany now had at its disposal a large number of troops that had previously been serving on the Eastern Front. As reported by Nicholson, the signing of the Russo-German Armistice on December 18, 1917 allowed the Germans to transfer 178 Divisions to the Western Front. During the late fall of 1917 and early winter of 1918, the Germans were preparing to launch major actions near St. Quentin, Arras, Armentieres...

This is the story of one of thousands of war trophies brought home by the Allied Armies at the conclusion of the Great War of 1914-1919. Many think the armaments that adorn our parks were our weapons - not the case - they were trophies that were captured and then assigned to the communities or organizations. For Canada, at least a detailed listing of these war trophies remains in the archives. The Milton War Trophy was captured by the 3rd Canadian Infantry Battalion, 1st Brigade, 1st Canadian...

From 1915 to 1922 the Town of Milton (Ontario, Canada) issued commemorative gold watches to returning Great War (WWI) soldiers, as well as to the early soldiers killed in action. There was no list (2011) who received the 118 gold watches, just criteria for their selection and presentation. Richard Laughton undertook to use that criteria to develop a likely list of candidates, using archived records, maps, census documents and knowledge from the "known to exist" watches. This report...
